Have been scanning slides that are from 10 to 40 yrs old. Here is one taken at 37,000' of some volanic Mtns in Northen Ca. The photo is not that great but I thought that the subject matter was neat. Wasn't quite sure as how to make my camera settings for this shot so I just left it on auto. Was using a Canon T90 and a Kiron 38mm - 105mm. At least in todays world one can play around with their digital camera and see immediate results. Any thoughts on this subject?

What exactly did you this ascanned slideinto a pic album or did you take a photo of a scanned print?

I think it's a dramatic photo of sortsdue to the way it shows relationship of the volcanic mtns. to each other.Some of those type photos are pretty neat.

Hi there VP - This was a colored slide that I processed in my P.I.E. PrimeFilm 3650U slide & film scanner. The software includes Digital ICE, ROM & GEM which is parts of the CyberView X program. I can scan in TIFF or JPG. DPI max is 3600 although custom settings permits even a higher DPI but have yet to push the envelope that far. Also lets one scan at 8 or 16 bit. Also lets one set the type of film used in addition to the brand of film. The best part of this purchase that I bought this scanner on-line from Costco and have 6 months to test it before I have to return for a full refund. Thanks guys for the compliments.

:-)That T90 is a great camera bhammitt. However, I really wanted an auto focus camera for I had real problems focusing indoors or at night. Even though I added a 3+diopter [spelling ?] it didn't help that much. Besides people use to run if they seen me bringing out my screen and projector. I really enjoy my digital cameras. [300D and G2]. Now when I travel I bring my lap too and can view my photos at the end of the day.

An oldy, but a good one and well worth rescuing. Those volcanos are really something!
